According to Slashdot, the American Chemical Society is suing Google over their use of the title Google Scholar. The American Chemical Society has a product called SciFinder Scholar, and they feel that Google Scholar infringes on their trademark. Wow, this is like Spike Lee thinking he has the sole right to the name Spike and Fox News suing Al Franken over his use of the phrase “fair and balanced.” Of course this is more about the fact that users must pay to use SciFinder Scholar while Google Scholar is free, but when do we actually sue over what we’re actually pissed off about anymore?
